The best time for a perk test is in the driest part of the year! This is usually towards the end of summer or the beginning of winter. This is the best time because the water table beneath the soil will be at the lowest point, and dry soil will absorb liquid more rapidly. However, if the soil is frozen or has recently absorbed a lot of rain/meltwater, percolation results will naturally be lower.
